Description

New York Times Best Seller “Dapper Dan is a legend, an icon, a beacon of inspiration to

many in the Black community. His story isn’t just about fashion. It’s about tenacity,

curiosity, artistry, hustle, love, and a singular determination to live our dreams out loud.”

(Ava DuVernay, director of Selma, 13th, and A Wrinkle in Time) NAMED ONE OF THE BEST

BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY VANITY FAIR With his now-legendary store on 125th Street in

Harlem, Dapper Dan pioneered high-end streetwear in the 1980s, remixing classic luxury-brand

logos into his own innovative, glamorous designs. But before he reinvented haute couture, he was

a hungry boy with holes in his shoes, a teen who daringly gambled drug dealers out of their

money, and a young man in a prison cell who found nourishment in books. In this remarkable

memoir, he tells his full story for the first time. Decade after decade, Dapper Dan discovered

creative ways to flourish in a country designed to privilege certain Americans over others. He

witnessed, profited from, and despised the rise of two drug epidemics. He invented stunningly bold

credit card frauds that took him around the world. He paid neighborhood kids to jog with him in an

effort to keep them out of the drug game. And when he turned his attention to fashion, he did so

with the energy and curiosity with which he approaches all things: learning how to treat fur himself

when no one would sell finished fur coats to a Black man; finding the best-dressed hustler in the

neighborhood and converting him into a customer; staying open 24 hours a day for nine years

straight to meet demand; and, finally, emerging as a world-famous designer whose looks went on

to define an era, dressing cultural icons including Eric B. and Rakim, Salt-N-Pepa, Big Daddy

Kane, Mike Tyson, Alpo Martinez, LL Cool J, Jam Master Jay, Diddy, Naomi Campbell, and Jay-Z.

By turns playful, poignant, thrilling, and inspiring, Dapper Dan: Made in Harlem is a high-stakes

coming-of-age story spanning more than 70 years and set against the backdrop of an America

where, as in the life of its narrator, the only constant is change. Praise for Dapper Dan: Made in

Harlem:“Dapper Dan is a true one of a kind, self-made, self-liberated, and the sharpest man you

will ever see. He is couture himself.” (Marcus Samuelsson, New York Times best-selling author of

Yes, Chef)“What James Baldwin is to American literature, Dapper Dan is to American fashion. He

is the ultimate success saga, an iconic fashion hero to multiple generations, fusing street with high

sartorial elegance. He is pure American style.” (André Leon Talley, Vogue contributing editor and

author)
